On Wednesday 28 June, the British Council, in partnership with Natural History Museum RotterdamThe Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and Codarts, will present the ninth Hoboken Lecture by British ecologist professor Kate Jones

About the Lecture

Most of the human population now lives in cities, leading to significant environmental challenges. In her Hoboken Lecture, professor Jones will discuss how building nature back into cities is an important step to creating happier, healthier and more resilient areas for everyone to thrive. She will demonstrate how nature-based solutions could help both mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change in cities and how citizen science and new technologies can help to create better data-driven management of our environments.
